Alright, I'm going to throw out my plan for this weekend's brew:
I'm going use the following basic hefeweizen recipe as a framework: 7# wheat malt extract, 1 1/2 oz Liberty (3.8%), 1/2 oz Liberty, then fermented with American Hefeweizen yeast. I thought that some people here have brewed a hefe before, so I wanted to put this out there to see if there's any suggestions. Specifically, I'm wondering about any steeping grains that might have been used. It seems a little weird to me that none are included in this recipe.
Pulling from a recipe I found online, I'm going to add in cinnamon, orange peel and lemon peel during the boiling to hopefully get a summer taste to this thing.
